In 2-3 pages write an essay. Using Slumming It from week 10, consider the housing development plans for Dharavi. Pretend you are now Plato’s Philosopher King or biblically the wise King Solomon. It is your job to make a determination for the fate of Dharavi. Do you allow for the housing towers to be built and for the slums to be destroyed? Try to be realistic in your response. If you want to keep the slum but make improvements within it, consider there will be an expense which must be paid and an unhappy investor who wants to make a lot of money on that land. If you destroy the slum, you will need to find places for all of these people or they will end up homeless in the streets of Mumbai. We are not pretending to be a genie in a lamp but a leader. Do an analysis using three of the normative theories of your choosing. The analysis using the theories are much more important than your conclusion.

Part 2
In a second essay use the Case Study: Female Genital Cutting on page 15 of the textbook. Use a different three normative theories to do an analysis of the issue. There should be a concise introduction and conclusion in addition to the body of the text. The essay can be a paragraph per theory. The analysis should be about 2 pages in length total depending on the theories.

The normative theories of ethics are:

  • Virtue Ethics
  • Utilitarianism
  • Deontology (Kant)
  • Rights Theory
  • Ethics of Care
  • Egoism
  • Natural Ethics

In your conclusion, you may give your opinion which of the methods you believe is the best approach. Please do not make this a 2 page opinion piece but instead a 1.75 page analysis with a .25 page opinion at the end. You will be graded much more heavily on your analysis than your opinion. In addition, please do not use the little space you have to summarize the documentary for me. I’ve seen it. Use examples specifically and quotes when possible. Each of the normative theories has principles and specific vocabulary which you need to be using when doing an analysis.
